The Student Alumni Association (SAA) is providing students with a way to preserve BYU-Idaho traditions and be involved on campus every semester by participating in the I-Challenge.

The I-Challenge card has 25 activities to complete, with five possible prizes (shirts, water bottles, pins, banners and backpacks) awarded for getting a bingo or blackout on the card.

To participate in I-Challenge, students can pick an I-Challenge card at the SAA office and begin working to mark off the activities.

Activities range from hiking R Mountain, going to devotional, creating a tradition or taking a picture with the Thomas E. Ricks statue on campus.

“I-Challenge is a great way to get a good mix of campus,” said Derek  Toone, student alumni director and a senior studying business management.

Toone said each activity of I-Challenge is intended to help students become familiar with a new area of BYU-I campus.

“You can get the overall experience and exposure of BYU-I,” Toone said.

Students from the SAA will be getting incoming freshmen more involved in I-Challenge in the coming semesters. This will help a larger population of the student body to begin experiencing what BYU-I has to offer earlier in their academic careers.

I-Challenge is not only for freshmen, but also for students who will soon be BYU-I alumni themselves.

Toone said that the SAA wants students to be involved while they are attending BYU-I and after they have graduated.

According to the SAA’s website, www.byui.edu/saa, the purpose of the I-Challenge is to encourage a sense of tradition and loyalty to BYU-I that will motivate students to be involved in the university and prepare them to become great alumni.

Toone said I-Challenge will be expanding to involve pathway students in order to help involve students who aren’t currently attending BYU-I on campus. The online portion of the school is growing, and there is a demand from pathway students to be involved with the campus.

Students can claim prizes at the SAA’s offices, located in MC 175.
